Main Article Content
This article discusses an invitation circle, a process of inviting workshop and classroom participants into collaborative and humanizing inquiry, and provides guidelines for initiating an invitation circle. Drawing from indigenous and posthuman traditions, invitation circles model decolonizing inquiry, encourage participants to develop humanizing connections with one another, and foster imagination of futures unconstrained by the colonial imaginary.
